Event Type: 

In 2016 it was decided that Commonwealth of MA would start working in Drupal. At the time, I was coming off a year and half stint in Django/python and was trying to determine how best to attack learning Drupal. Everyone learns differently and I decided on the sink or swim / trial by fire methodology. To achieve this I joined several side projects, all in Drupal. This presentation will focus on the following:

  • lessons learned from the last year
  • identify different avenues for learning Drupal
  • discuss our role in the Drupal Community

Rob Powell

Worked for the Commonwealth of MA since 2010. Held multiple roles: ETL developer, Peoplesoft developer, and most recently a Drupal Developer. I consider myself a self taught web developer with a history with technologies such as django/python, php nuke cms, & codeigniter MVC. Passionate about career learning.
